Efi Logginou From the Street

Berlin based artist Efi Logginou uses photography as a form or urban documentation and exploration of daily street life.

“I am an actress by profession. I only started photography about five years ago. The process of taking pictures allows me to explore the curiosity I have for other people with the same fervency as when I work as an actress. Acting and photography have common denominators: curiosity and observation. When I moved to Berlin, I had to understand and get use to both a different culture and a foreign language. Photography helped me to communicate and get closer. It was the key to adjust to a new life and each day the street would provide me with different experiences, each day I would discover new things.

I’m a permanent observer and the camera is my window to the outside world. On sunny days I like to experiment outdoor and photograph people in front of interesting buildings. On rainy days life mostly takes place indoor and I’m attentive to scenes happening inside cafés, restaurants, even cars. People become somehow separated from the street and The reflection of the glass window provides a surface connecting two worlds – Efi Logginou
